Endovenous Laser Ablation


Endovenous Laser Ablation is a highly successful day-case procedure to remove varicose veins.  Prior to the procedure, an ultrasound scan is performed. This guides a catheter into position within the vein, through which a tiny laser is passed. The laser delivers short bursts of energy which heat and seal the vein.

This treatment is popular with patients. It is carried out under local anaesthetic with a very short recovery time.
